Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 3627, Kilah Davenport Child Protection Act of 2013   [open pdf - 19KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary on December 4, 2013. From the Document: "CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3627 would have no significant cost to the federal government. Enacting the bill could affect direct spending and revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, CBO estimates that any effects would be insignificant. H.R. 3627 would broaden the coverage of current laws that address domestic assaults by certain repeat offenders. As a result, the government might be able to pursue cases that it otherwise would not be able to prosecute. CBO expects that the bill would apply to a relatively small number of offenders, however, so any increase in costs for law enforcement, court proceedings, or prison operations would not be significant. Any such costs would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds."
